Leon Edwards (21-3) Vs Colby Covington (17-3)

UFC 296 is upon us, and make no mistake this is the biggest fight of the YEAR.

Colby “Chaos” Covington is once again challenging for the undisputed welterweight title.

It’s worth noting that he earned this opportunity through his popularity and ability to draw in viewers, rather than solely based on his achievements in the octagon.

Leon “Rocky” Edwards is fresh off back to back wins over former champ Kamaru Usman, and appeared to be in excellent form in his recent outing.

Colby is making his return after beating Jorge Masvidal in a grudge match almost two years ago.

I believe Edwards is a nightmare match up for Colby and he will be in for a long night.

Colby made this very personal at the press conference and I’m confident that both men will make this a dirty fight and its possible we may see a point reduction from either fighter during the match.

In the end it won’t matter as I believe Edwards has the skills to put Covington away for good and end his title hopes once and for all.

My prediction is that Edwards will secure a victory by KO/TKO, although a submission win wouldn’t surprise me either.

Pick: Leon Edwards Wins Inside Distance (+250)
